Here’s a question I received from Adam via email…
Question: Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe you are an advocate of training often (more than the usual 3 times a week). I like the idea but I cannot seem to train more than 3 times a week without getting worn down. Do you have any tips to recover faster so I can increase my training frequency?
Yes Adam you’re correct I do like the idea of people training more often. Not necessarily harder more often. But just doing more easier stuff like walking, playing sport, swimming etc. on top of their strength training.
I personally lift iron 6 times a week but that’s because I’m a gym junkie. I eat, sleep and breathe this shit.
I’m sure if you put my blood under a microscope you would see little kettlebells, barbells and protein shakes swimming around.
Also, I have my own place which I’m at every day. So that makes thing a lot easier too.
Most people can only really tolerate the gym and all its antics about 3 times a week. If I trained at a public gym I probably would only be able to as well.
So just to clarify… when I mention that people should train more often it doesn’t always necessarily mean training at the gym.
Before I get onto some actually things you can add to your day to increase your recover, lets first address what you may be doing wrong to prolong your recovery time…
